RATHDRUM, Idaho -- After a hard four days of work, the Extreme Team has revealed the new and improved Chuck Holt Memorial Field in Rathdrum!
Mark Peterson, volunteers from Horizon Credit Union, and your hometown Chevy dealers helped turn the field into a great venue for kids to play.
Since Monday, the Extreme Team has been painting, removing concrete, and laying dirt across the upgraded fields.
The concession stand also has a brand new look, with metal paneling on the outside and a revamped red roof.
The team also acquired brand new signs for Stub Myers Park, which will go up at the park's entrances.
The team also refined the fields, getting rid of grass where it shouldn't have been growing, and improving the infield lines.
"I have never seen the fields look better. My kids played on these fields forty-something years ago, I coached, and now there's a whole new group of kids that are going to enjoy these fields," said Mayor of Rathdrum Vic Holmes.
Selkirk has also set up a program where kids can learn pickleball at the field, the world's fastest growing sport.
